Yes Men fool the US with a fake New York Times

The Yes Men, a tremendously clever group of con men have pranked the world again.  They, through a group of volunteers, handed out a ton of fake issues of the New York Times.

These papers were dated July 4, 2009 and triumphantly announce the end of the Iraq war.   The Yes Men went through all the trouble of actually printing physical copies of this fake newspaper at subway stations and other areas around New York, LA, Philly and other major cities.

A brilliant ploy and one that I think worthy of repeating.  Read more here if you’re interested.
